Advanced International School: Novel gauge theories and their dynamics

Elli Pomoni from DESY, Hamburg will give 9 twohour lectures on the topic.
The topics that will be covered are:
1 The Landscape of supersymmetric theories in 4D
2 Moduli space of supersymmetric vacua
3 Seiberg Witten theory
4 Brane constructions
5 Sduality and 2D modular invariance
6 Pestun Localization
7 Nekrasov instanton partition functions
8 2D CFT, Liouville (Toda)
9 The AGT correspondence
